When my kids were young we would take leftover cans after parties and use them for target practice for my son's bow and his BB gun.  good family fun in the front yard, especially when it's 110F outside.
I'd really just rather be brewing in sunny Carlsbad New Mexico

Target practice. About the only thing that is good for. THEN I would properly dispose of the shot up can....

Maybe I should have said you are really thirsty and had been sucking on a juniper berry for the last hour. :D

More information:

- the bulging bottom is from freezing and expansion
- the sun side of the logo was definitely faded
- this is a "specially lined" can
- the production date said 2009
and remember, it does say Always Smooth on the can.

Well why didn't you say so?! That's good enough for me.
Beer is like porn. You can buy it, but it's more fun to make your own.

 :-[, it was cold, and I was dang thirsty.

I guess a "prize" like that...in other terms "an unopened beer".... is not something I would generally pass up.

I wiped the lid clean, held it out away from the body, and with one eye squinted....cracked it.

The first sip was nice.  Cold, wet and bubbly.
The taste brought back my high school years, although I have never drank a Keystone.

About a third of the way through the high level of carbonation made me full, and my thirst was quenched anyway. 
I poured it out and brought it home for a photo to bother you fellas with.  ;D

Cheers.

oh man I used to drink that stuff in my college days because it was 25 cents a draft on Friday nights.  Id buy 12 at a time and see how fast I could get wasted....it didnt take long at 25 cents and the putrid taste made you force it down even quicker.
